Autumn Ernhard, 30, solved a "tough" puzzle Thursday on "Wheel of Fortune," a feat that earned her $1 million.

Ernhard guessed "Tough Workout" for the $1 million prize, only the second time that amount has been won in the history of the show. The Laguna Niguel, Calif. animal pharmaceuticals sales rep only had four letters on the board -- a G, an R and two Ts -- when she pulled the answer out on her first try.

"I am in complete and utter shock," she told ABC News. "I'm shaking. I came here today because I love the game, I wanted to have some fun and solve some puzzles - I feel like I'm in a dream!"

Also looking shocked and excited -- hosts Pat Sajak and Vanna White, who are celebrating the show's 30th anniversary.
